High Shine : Trend Report SS15

After talks of decade of the seventies that has inspired many designers for next spring now lets look at colours. A spin off from the disco era (e.g. Tom Ford) we see a lot of metallics, both cool and warm tones. Metallics move forward every season with new textures. This SS15, electric sheen finishes came in the form of patent leathers, high-shine plastics and lurex fabrics like silk organza and satin.

The jewel shades of red, yellow, blue and green injects life into the mute pastels of the past summer season. Most notably at Michael Kors, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Victoria Beckham, paired with sunshine yellow, truest red, electric blues and emerald green.…I could go on, but let just say, it’s a trend.

Iridescent was also a common theme throughout. The ethereal sheer looks at Mary Katrantzou and space age party dresses at Markus Lupfer, Nineties/Millennial from Richard Nicoll. Looks were enhanced by muted metallics of white, silver, grey, pastel blue, pink and lilac. This shimmery palette works well across basics and dressier pieces.
